Oprah Winfrey Gets The Biopic Treatment

Producer Larry A. Thompson is planning either a two or four-hour telemovie about the life of Oprah Winfrey says The Hollywood Reporter.

Based on Kitty Kelley’s tell-all biography, the project is already targeting an September 2011 release date to coincide with the end of Winfrey’s weekday talk show.

Thompson, who has produced TV biopics about Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz, is shopping the project to networks with an unknown likely to be cast as the talk show host.
